Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 26.398 billion Vyos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vyolyncian economy, worth a remarkable 6,336 trillion souls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 240,019 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 129,848th in the world for Most Inclusive, scoring -1,035 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
